Wisconsin over Coastal Carolina: Coastal Carolina has a win over a power-conference school this season, knocking off Auburn on the road on Dec. 5. But Wisconsin isn't Auburn.
Oregon over Oklahoma State: Both of these teams play small ball and both overachieved. Since talent is close to even, I'll go with the team that is hot. Oregon has won 11 of its last 13 games, while OK State has lost six of seven.
Arkansas over Wofford: Wofford's tallest player in its rotation is 6'7". As long as the Razorbacks play through 6'11" SEC Player of the Year Bobby Portis, they should win.
North Carolina over Harvard: Harvard has won its round of 64 game two straight years, but that run ends here. The Crimson just aren't as good offensively this season, and the Tar Heels are playing really well on that end right now. Harvard's best chance is to really muck it up and slow the pace. That's hard to do against UNC.
BYU over Xavier: BYU was one of the final teams to get in the bracket, but if the committee had seeded the field based off the final month of the season, a No. 11 seed would have been criminal for the team that won at Gonzaga.
The Cougars are one of the best offensive teams in the country and are extremely hard to guard because of their aggressiveness off the dribble and number of shooters they put on the floor. They have more talent than Xavier and enter the tournament playing better basketball.
Baylor over Georgia State: Georgia State's second-leading scorer, Ryan Harrow, missed the Sun Belt championship game with a hamstring injury. Even if Harrow plays this week, it's hard to believe he'll be 100 percent. The Panthers rely a lot on Harrow and R.J. Hunter to score. If he's not 100 percent, this could turn into a blowout, as they managed only 38 points in their Sun Belt final victory.
Ohio State over VCU: D'Angelo Russell tore up West Virginia's full-court press in a preseason secret-scrimmage win for the Buckeyes. The Rams play a similar style and are not as good as the Mountaineers, especially without point guard Briante Weber, who is out for the season with torn knee ligaments.
Arizona over Texas Southern: Texas Southern played at Indiana, Tennessee, SMU, Baylor, Florida, Gonzaga, Michigan Sate and K-State, knocking off the latter two. Of course, the only team on that list at Arizona's level is Gonzaga. What happened in that one? The Zags won by 40.
